Dress code Riu Garopa

Hi

Have just booked for next year and just wanting to know dress code for restaurants. Have been to a Riu in Tunisia where men had to wear long trousers for evening meals is it the same at the Garopa. Also what is acceptable for breakfast/ lunch are shorts t-shirts vest tops etc. ok?

Many Thanks

Im just back and its quite relaxed. Most people made an effort and was nicely dressed but comfortable. A few people here and there didnt bother and was wearing casual shorts/t shirt to dinner/evening entertainment but most people were presentable.

Breakfast/lunch is relaxed. Most people are going to the pool/beach afterwards so women generally had swimwear with a dress or whatever over it. Men usually shorts and t shirt/vest top.

Lunch was the same most people just generally covered swimwear. There are snack bars by the pool for lunch as well as the main restraunt

That's a great help thank you, like to make an effort on an evening anyway, but just wanted to check about the long trousers for my partner. Did the same relaxed approach apply to the a la carte restaurants also?

Yeah most people were presentable at meals. We only tried the Asian restraunt although we do plan to return at some point so will try the others then. Hubby tended to wear jeans and a dressy shirt and I wore a dress or skirt. I would say the younger males were more casual like 3/4 length trousers and trainers. About 40-50 then tended to be cotton chinos etc so just wear what you's would normally wear. There is an on site hairdressers so I just went every few days and tried out a new hairstyle, they do lots of diffrent hair braids usually 6 euro special offer so I just did this as it was so hot it was hard to keep my hair straight
